Cubasis Cinematic Rock Sketch
Author View comments Tags Tags: , , ,

Recorded a cinematic Rock idea real quick. It’s just a sketch. Synths used iProphet, Microlog, and Sunrizer. Recorded in Cubasis on iPad Air2. Shared the project with singer Chris Catalano for a collab. Lets see where we can take this! I froze all the midi tracks because I found it easier to sketch out audio this way. Eventually I’ll tweak the midis to fit and then print them to audio as isolated tracks with product. This way it will sound less copy and paste.

The following tutorial shows you how to achieve a pumping effect using sidechain compression in Cubasis and an inter app audio effect AUFX PUSH. Good for producing Future Bass pads with a ducking effect. *AUFX Push is by Kymatica. In the video I say it’s by AUFX which was a mistake.
